It’s finally Halloween, my favourite time of year! It’s not only an amazing time for cozy, layered fashion but also time to let our inner ghouls show. Time for gothic, macabre fashion choices and horrific nail art!
Today we pay a subtle homage to our two favourite bloody TV shows: Dexter and True Blood. With nails that any blood spatter analyst would want to examine and an accent nail with some fangs like Eric Northman’s! Today we’ll show you how to do some blood splatter nails with a simple technique— you can use different colours to just do a splattered look any other time of year too!
[ BASE COAT ] – Start with a white base coat on all your nails (except your accent nail). Make sure to do thin coats and let each coat dry in between!
[ DIP STRAW ] – On a scrap piece of paper, drop a glob of your blood red polish. Take your drinking straw and dip it into the wet polish, picking up a thick layer.
[ BLOW ] – Hold the straw up to your nail and blow the polish on in a quick outtake of breath! Your splatters will be a bit messy, so make sure that you are doing it over a scrap piece of paper.
[ CLEAN UP ] – The splatters of nail polish will be all over your fingers and cuticles, so clean it up using a cotton swab dipped in some remover.
[ ACCENT NAIL ] – This step is optional! Use your striper brush (an extremely thin nail art brush used for fine details) to paint on some white fangs and then add a few drops of blood!
